    Default Is MF back from Greece yet?

    Fat tourists are crippling donkeys that carry them around Santorini | Daily Mail Online




    Fat tourists are CRIPPLING the donkeys that carry them around the Greek island of Santorini forcing locals to cross-breed them with mules to make them sturdier
    Santorini has a hilly terrain so donkeys have traditionally been used for transport
    In the summer, up to five cruise ships a day bring 1,200 tourists onto the island
    The number of overweight tourists on the island has trebled in the last 10 years
    "If you didn't do anything that wasn't good for you it would be a very dull life. What are you gonna do? Everything that is pleasant in life is dangerous."

    Is MF the Fat Tourist or the Ass?
    “Live a good life. If there are gods and they are just, then they will not care how devout you have been, but will welcome you based on the virtues you have lived by. If there are gods, but unjust, then you should not want to worship them. If there are no gods, then you will be gone, but will have lived a noble life that will live on in the memories of your loved ones.”

    ― Marcus Aurelius

    Spooky. My brother only mentioned Santorini and Donkeys last night on a call.

    Off to Portugal tomorrow, I bet I can find her.

    Someone at the Daily Wail is tulip at maths. Five cruise ships is a hell of a lot more that 1200 tourists. If the fat ones were made to walk around, there's be a few less fat ones. Perhaps I'd better shut up now, or I might have to be the next Minister of Health...

    His heart is in the right place - shame we can't say the same about his brain...

    If I'm honest, Gary must have died about 5 years ago, a fact which will become immediately evident the next time we meet...
